So how did the trip go?  If time is on my side this weekend I might detour over there for a little bit while I am on that side of Md.

Wow are Pelecypods (had to look up what it was) typically that big at the site?  If so my son would crazy if he found that.  We didn't end up having time to head over to the canal when we were out that way.

Yep, more or less. he one in my hand (exogyra cancellata) is one of the larger ones for the day, but most in that pile are the same order of magnitude. I've also sifted around and found some that are less than 1/2 an inch across!
